I am delighted to present this petition from the students of Ysgol Dinas Brân school in Llangollen, and to congratulate them on their amazing campaigning on environmental issues.

The petition states:

The petition of students of Ysgol Dinas Brân, Clwyd South,

Declares that single use plastics are causing irreparable damage to the environment;
and further that Styrofoam is toxic to the school environment and as such is a danger to student health and wellbeing.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to prohibit the use of all non-essential single use plastics in UK schools by the end of 2019, and the use of Styrofoam immediately.

And the petitioners remain, etc.
